    Report: Datsyuk signs with Russian club

    MOSCOW - It appears that Pavel Datsyuk meant it when he set a Monday deadline in his talks with the Red Wings.

    According to Reuters, the restricted free agent signed a one-year contract with Russian club Avangard Omsk today.

    The 27-year-old All-Star centre, who reportedly turned down a $5 million offer by Detroit was apparently looking for a deal of at least $6 million with the Red Wings.

    "I think I am worth at least what (Dany) Heatley or (Joe) Thornton got from their deals," Datsyuk told the Russian media.

    Datsyuk has a clause in his Avangard contract, allowing him to leave for the NHL midway through the season.
    Turns down a $5m contract, knowing the Wings' cap numbers?

    You're being fucking dramatic. You own a TV and an air mattress. That's not exactly what I'd call "a lot to lose."

        I wonder how much Avangard Omsk is paying him. It's probably a lot less than what he turned down from the Wings.

          I don't see why they'd give Datsyuk even 5 million a year...

          He still has alot to prove...

          Does he deserve to be higher paid then Demitra?

          I think no.

            Yeah. Especially in the new NHL. His Rusky agent is giving him bad, bad advice.

            And I couldn't be happier!

                The Wings should have signed Datsyuk and Zetterberg before bringing back the wheelchair brigade and putting a strain on their cap number.

                  So can I assume Avangard Omsk dominate the Blues?

                      Couldn't happen to a better team, sign all the oldies before signing your future and then realise half of that future is a greedy Russian kid who wants big money for one good season and bits of another. Let him dangle the puck in Siberia for peanuts, might teach some humility.

                          according to all the 14 year old wings fans at letsgowing.com..any player in the world would take less to play for the mighty Redwings . Next to Leafs fans, the Wings fans have a sense of entitlement that is hard to believe.

                            Could we be witnessing the downfall of the Wings dynasty?

                            Too bad the Blues are going to be awful.

                              If the game is going to be wide open as we keep hearing, the Wings are gonna struggle big time.
